Education: PEF distributes 2.4m textbooks

KARACHI:10 April: This is the scene at the service lane near Urdu Bazaar, Nazimabad, where the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has set up a camp, offering free items for the poor. The initiative began 10 days ago with just two tables but the overwhelming turnout made the party increase the number of tables to 10.

The campaign, titled ‘Parho aur Parhao’ [Learn and Educate], was initiated by JI leaders in Nazimabad. “The basic idea was just to make a habit of donating used books to needy children instead of selling the books to scrap dealers,” said the organiser of the campaign, Syed Muhammad Muzafar.Express Turbuni.
